Product description

From the Author

The original idea for this cookbook came to me from my friends, for whom my wife and I occasionally entertain and cook for. All of them have visited Greece many times and enjoyed my country's gastronomic dishes. They have also appreciated my mother's home cooking during her annual visits to Britain. It was my mother who taught me the secrets of how to cook tasty Greek food.

When I started compiling this book I took into consideration that most people work and don't have much time for long and complicated preparations. I have therefore selected a small number of basic Greek recipes which are quick to prepare, and hope that you will be tempted to try them out and enjoy. Of course I have also included recipes which require more time, e.g. for that special Sunday lunch.

The Greek Mediterranean people have the lowest rates of diet-linked disease and the longest life expectancy in the world. Traditional Greek cooking is a naturally low-fat, healthy and satisfying cuisine and my Greek Home Cookery book shares its secrets with you.

Greek cooking offers an incredibly rich and diverse array of foods and beverages that are the culmination of literally thousands of years of living, cooking, and eating. While each Greek meal is fresh and inviting, it is also a trip back through Greece's history. Anyone who has ever visited Greece will have brought back many fond memories of the country, its people and the Greek food.

Hospitality in Greece is a duty willingly performed. Greece is the land of welcome, with a great tradition of hospitality, whose people are so warm and friendly; you'll never want to leave! It is also the land of feasting, where even the simplest taverna can offer you fresh fish, barbecued meats, the unique Feta cheese, fruits and vegetables, all washed down with delightful wines.
